The Legion of Merit (abbrev.: LoM) is awarded to all members of the Armed Forces of the Galaxy Alliance without reference to degree for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements. The performance must have been such as to merit recognition of key individuals for service rendered in a clearly exceptional manner. Performance of duties normal to the grade, branch, specialty or assignment, and experience of an individual is not an adequate basis for this award. For service not related to actual war the term "key individual" applies to a narrower range of positions than in time of war and requires evidence of significant achievement. In peacetime, service should be in the nature of a special requirement or of an extremely difficult duty performed in an unprecedented and clearly exceptional manner. However, justification of the award may accrue by virtue of exceptionally meritorious service in a succession of important positions. Gold Stars will reflect the "grade" of officer; a single star recognizes the recipient to be a Legionnaire, two stars denotes an Officer, three stars denotes a Commander, and four stars denotes a Chief Commander.
